How to avoid mosquitos inside your house. Click on the titles below.

Get rid of any standing water from your backyard and windows

Female mosquitoes lay their eggs in stagnant water, which is why getting rid of any standing water near your house is one of the most basic steps you can take to keep mosquitoes away. Especially if you live in a mosquito infested area, you really want to be thorough, since mosquito eggs can hatch in as little as one inch of standing water.
And don’t forget that female mosquito can lay up to 300 eggs at a time!

Incorporate mosquito-repelling plants around your backyard

There are several plants with strong scents that we find pleasant, which you can use to help mask your own smell and keep nearby mosquitoes at a distance: 

  • Citronella
  • Lemon Balm
  • Catnip
  • Basil
  • Lavender
  • Peppermint
Use plug-in fans and keep the flow of air directed at the lower half of your body

Mosquitoes tend to fly very close to the ground to avoid wind, so directing the fan’s force downward will block their approach.

Use an insect net

If you’re worried about mosquitoes when traveling, it’s a good idea to check that your accommodation has either mosquito nets around the bed or insect screens on the doors and windows.
